Almost every person at one time or another has searched for an ulcer treatment to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with mouth ulcers.
However, if you are someone who seems to constantly have them, then you may have some underlying issues of what is causing them. Still, there are some ways to actually not only treat your mouth ulcers, but hopefully help avoid them in the future.
Find what you are allergic to:
The majority of people who suffer from mouth ulcers on a regular basis typically have a food allergy. They may be allergic to some of the oddest things that you would never even suspect. For example, I know someone who get mouth ulcers when she eats anything with corn in it. This causes problems considering many things have corn in it. Still when she avoids eating anything with corn, her problems of having mouth ulcers all the time started to go away. So if this is you, I would encourage you to get to a doctor to hopefully help you find what you might be allergic to.
Other people with mouth ulcers can frequently just have the problem because of their unhealthy eating habits. Perhaps they eat the same unhealthy things over and over again. They may be lacking in certain vitamins and the mouth ulcers are a result of the vitamin deficiency. This may be a good place to start if you have suddenly noticed a frequent problem with your mouth ulcers.
Try to avoid stress in your life:
Unfortunately, mouth ulcers can also be a result of stress. Ulcers in general, whether the mouth ulcers or stomach ulcers is a way for you body to tell you to slow it down a little bit. I am unsure of what the scientific reasoning behind this result is, however, studies show that any type of ulcer can be related to stress. Try to ensure that you are leaving work at work, if at all possible and come home and try to live a more peaceful lifestyle.
Use over-the-counter benzocaine:
In the event that you simply continue to have mouth ulcers, the over the counter option available is the use of benzocaine. This is a medication that is sold in many common types of medications. You will simply apply it to your mouth ulcer which will almost immediately reduce the pain and in most types of medications there is also other ingredients that may help the ulcer heal.
Seek the doctor’s help:
If you have tried all of the above, you are not out of luck entirely. There is some medication to treat mouth ulcers. This medication typically comes in a form of mouth wash. It works similar to the benzocaine in the since that it gives quick relief of the pain. However, the medication is stronger than the over the counter options. The only problem is that it is only prescribed in the most severe cases. The reason is due to the fact that it can stain your teeth permanently. It is encouraged to avoid using this unless you are one of the most severe cases of frequent mouth ulcers.
